Putnam County Schools Superintendent Chuck Hatfield is interested in learning more about the program.
"There has been some discussion, but I don't know enough about it or exactly how it would work," he said.
That's what next week's meeting is for, Talbott said, "to work this out."
"Let's start getting soil tests done this fall ... get ready for next year," he said.
Grants are available to cover what school systems spend purchasing from local farmers, according to Talbott.
"The Board of Education gets paid back for the local foods they buy," he said. "We want people to know this is available to us. Let's get excited about it."
